This place has fast service, delicious tacos, self-serve tortilla chips and a fresh salsa bar. Potato/egg and barbacoa tacos are great for a fast breakfast. The Pirata tacos are a filling meal by itself, my new favorite.

The fajita tacos are one of the best tacos I have had. They are so soft and they have a very good flavor. They are a little expensive but they are delicious we ordered to go. We tried the new Taco Palenque in Edinburg. I recommend them because they are fantastic!

Loved the refried beans. Loved the Caldo. Loved the Rice. Parking is a little tough if they are busy.
